Thanks to all the folks who provided information about these chronographs -- both the real ones and the fake ones -- and who contributed to this article. From the casemakers, to the dealers, to the refinishers, to the watchmakers, to the owners . . . you each added your unique knowledge to help solve the puzzle. In the end, as each piece fit perfectly with the others, the picture became perfectly clear. You all know who you are; some of you prefer not to be named; so I'll express my sincere appreciation to all those who contributed and leave it at that.
Thanks to Gary and Terry (at International Wristwatch) for turning an internet article into a printed piece; thanks to Larry, Greg, Charles, Konrad and Pascal for the photographs that accompany the article; thanks to Jack Heuer and Pascal Bechu (at TAG-Heuer) for showing genuine interest in this issue and for providing the definitive confirmation that the fakes are fakes; and thanks Chuck Maddox for the editorial advice and suggestions, as well as the design for this page.
